Evening Standard article on English Heritage blue plaques

Commenting on an article in today’s Evening Standard, a National Trust spokesman said:

“The article ‘National Trust saves our blue plaques for the nation’ in today’s Evening Standard has jumped several guns.

“The Trust currently has no role in the scheme which is ably managed by English Heritage.

“The plaques are much loved by Londoners and certainly worth saving. This was incorrectly interpreted as the Trust ‘stepping in’ to save the scheme.

“Should we be asked, we would be more than happy to explore with English Heritage any options for keeping it open.”
